A Self-Help Manual

Reviewer: Allison Martin

Moms with ADD is an affirmative how-to guide to managing your household and raising children for mothers who also have ADD (or ADHD). It is written in essay format, but in short, snappy paragraphs and sections covering many different aspects of daily life as a parent. The format is almost hyperactive itself, as personal anecdotal and quotes are interspersed with longer suggestions and short tips, which may appeal to someone who has difficulty concentrating. One of the best features of the book is its can do attitude, as Adamec makes it clear that even if you cannot find the keys each day, love and commitment to your children make you a great parent. She provides many examples on how to bring more order into your life, balanced by humor and insight that your family can thrive even if you are less than perfect. Topics she addresses include positive and negative attributes of ADD in women, organization and focus, parenting babies and (on the other extreme) parenting teens, keeping up with school, juggling family and work, and much more. This is an excellent resource for mothers who have recently been diagnosed with ADD (or suspect that they have this) and who are looking for supportive advice and practical tips for family "management."
